'The Bible is full of good stories, and hearing them as a child will give you resources that last a lifetime. Steve Eggleton offers a fresh take on well-known stories that are sure to capture the imaginations of young readers for years to come.' Terry Waite

The childhood of Nicodemus, known to everyone as Neeko, was shaped by his strict upbringing as a Pharisee in Jerusalem. A chance meeting with Josef of Arimathea during the festival of Sukkot was the start of a lasting friendship.

They both grow up to be members of the Sanhedrin Council, but they begin to question the Council's hostility toward a man from Nazareth, Jesus. Are the Council just a nest of poisonous snakes? Neeko secretly meets with Jesus and discovers for himself a life-transforming message. Will Neeko help Josef bury the body of Jesus and risk his reputation to believe in Jesus as God's promised Messiah?

God and the Snake Child is an epic story of life-shaping encounters and personal reflection on the right path to take.
